About This Wine:
They hate it because it can be so temperamental during the harvest season, often taking many more weeks than other varieties to fully ripen. It needs to be monitored constantly, and picking at the peak of ripeness can be a real challenge.
On the other hand, when the grapes cooperate, the resulting wines can be mind-blowing. That’s why the Pinot Noir-based wines of Burgundy in France, the Willamette Valley in Oregon, and several growing areas of California are so coveted. Ashfield Cellars is able to tap multiple areas in crafting its California Pinot Noir cuvee.
The 2017 vintage is a pretty wine, exhibiting beautiful floral aromas that lead to ample red-fruit flavors. Medium-light in body for easy drinking and savory on the finish for versatility with food (a Nicoise salad pairs perfectly), it’s a wine that you will find easy to love.
